Crime Quote of the Week 

"He took a pack of 'Disco Duck' $1 scratch tickets, scratched them and then cashed them in at various locations in the greater Treasure Valley."

Admittedly, except for the part about of a scratch game in 2006 Idaho being called "Disco Duck," this quote is not particularly memorable. So maybe when Idaho Lottery spokesman David Workman said it to KTVB Channel 7 crime reporter Andrea Dearden, the joke was more on the commission than on Christopher Martin, the 20-year-old security guard who was arrested for stealing the tickets from the Idaho Lottery headquarters. Martin could face up to five years in prison if he is convicted. Meanwhile, the person who came up with the idea for the ticket is still walking free. And they call this a justice system.
